Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
I have a linskys wireless network and I want to password protect it but don't know how. I live on a busy street and don't want people stopping in front of my home to log on. I got everything working well and even think I had a chance during setup to protect it but didn't at that time, but now I can't get back to that point where I can. I thought I had it but it said my code must be 40 or 104bit or something like that. I don't know what that means. Sorry for this being a fairly stupid question but any help is appreciated.
It's not really a stupid question, especially if you were not paying attention in computer class, or didn't take one :-)
The numbers are 64 and 128 bit and those equal 10 or 20 HEXADECIMAL digits. Those count from 0 to 9 and A to F for zero-to-15. In my cul-de-sac (French for dead end street) I just use 64 bit with 1011121314 as the WEP key. You could get cute and spell out someting like 123456FACE, just because it says something, but notice there are 10 legal HEX characters in a 64 bit word.
This is not absolute perfect security, btw but it keeps the casual computer user out of your system.
